DESIGN-DAY INTENSIVE

Imagine if your growing list of design tasks was all taken care of in one day.​

Imagine if your growing list of design tasks was all taken care of in one day.

Let’s be honest, you need design help, like, yesterday. And I want to provide you with a superior design experience with my utmost attention and performance, along with a fast, stress-free, and efficient process.

This service offers you the opportunity to have a whole day of my schedule dedicated to you, to check off design tasks that have been piling up.

WHY BOOK ME FOR A DAY?

How It Works:

Step 1: Book your design-day

Select your preferred design-day date from my calendar and complete the contract and payment steps. After this, you can consider your design-day booked!

Step 2: Complete the pre-work

I’ll send you a list of questions to collect more details and determine your priority items for the design-day. This step must be completed at least 2 days before our design-day to allow some time for clarifications if necessary. 

Step 3: I'll create your designs

I’ll get to work on your requests from the time my workday begins. We’ll communicate throughout the day with progress updates, feedback, and questions.

Step 4: Wrap-up

At the end of the day, your design work is done with no stress or long timelines.

DESIGN-DAY EXAMPLES

What can we accomplish when you book me for a whole workday?

Every single one of my design-days is unique, and yours will depend on your specific goals and needs. I will work on all the designs I can complete in an 8-hour period. Here are a couple of examples:

Branding Intensive

Design of a stunning simple logo, color & font choices, styleguide + collateral piece.

Web Design Intensive

Creation of a one-page responsive website or redesign of your existing one.

Presentation Design

Redesign your presentation with a winning makeover or create a corporate template.

Marketing Materials

One-pagers, stationery designs, social media posts, or any other corporate collateral.

Should you need a combination of the above, have another project or “design list” in mind, reach out so that we can discuss your options and what we can get done in a design-day.

Design-Day Success Stories

BI-MONTHLY RETAINER

Well Played is a research-based consulting firm in the interactive entertainment industry.

Through bi-monthly Design Days, we work together to create marketing and branding materials, reports, social posts, and sleek presentations. 

Mariana has been an absolute rock star for us. We get a lot of value out of having dedicated days, it allows us to create “wishlists” and most, if not all of it is always met. She’s very attuned to our design needs, requires very little oversight, handles our often late and lightly directed projects excellently and nails it usually the very first time.

BRANDING INTENSIVE​

Cella Studio, a worklife organization and marketing consulting studio, needed branding and a business card design that inspires female leadership and growth. The result was a stunning visual identity that reflects Cella Studio’s professionalism and essence.

I was amazed at how Mariana managed to grasp and create my branding vision in one day, in a way that fits my brand perfectly. From the colors to the fonts to the business cards – she understood my initial, raw idea and made it into a concrete design quickly.

WEB DESIGN INTENSIVE

Neri Murillo, a fashion cool-hunter and consultant needed a professional website completed quickly prior to an upcoming business trip. The result was a bright and modern one-page, fully functional responsive website designed to showcase Neri’s services, expertise and booking options.

Mariana’s skills and positive attitude are the perfect match to any project. She knows how to empathize with clients and easily identify creative solutions from the beginning. Mariana, thank you for developing my complete website in a single day, it conveys exactly what I was looking for.

common design-day questions

What will our design-day schedule look like?

Your project will have my full, undivided attention for 8 hours – it will be the only item on my schedule and you will be the only client I will be communicating with. I start work at 6 am EST, but we can come up with a schedule that works for both of us. 

Will I need to be available that day?

I highly recommend that you are available on our design-day to touch base throughout the day, provide feedback, and answer miscellaneous questions promptly. This way, we can make efficient progress and make good use of your design-day hours.

What happens if I need to reschedule?

If you need more time to gather your thoughts or materials, you may reschedule your design-day to up to 30 days from the original date with 7-days prior written notice. Since I blocked the day on my schedule and turned down other projects to be available, a rescheduling fee of 20% would apply.

How is payment handled?

Full payment is required at the time of booking to ensure we honor the workday I’ve set aside just for you. Please note that your day will not be secured and the work will not commence until full payment is received.

What happens if we don’t finish in one day?

In the case that more revisions, requirements, or additions that would require additional time are needed, we can discuss your options – whether it’s another design-day, a. half-day or a custom proposal.

Can I book multiple days? What about half-days?

Absolutely – feel free to reach out with any scheduling questions. Half design-days are mostly reserved to continue projects from previous design-days or projects. Retainers are also available if you’d like ongoing design support.
